Summary

Summary

The biscuit joiner has revolutionized woodworking by enabling woodworkers to create joints that are incredibly strong and durable. This book provides woodworkers, hobbyists and furniture makers with a variety of projects that will help them develop more efficient joinery techniques while creating wonderful new pieces of furniture for their home. There are 12 projects in all, including a lamp, a bookcase, a nightstand, a chest of drawers and an entertainment centre. Using a biscuit joiner, each piece can be made quickly and effectively, with joints that are as strong, if not stronger, than those made using traditional joinery techniques.

Library Journal Review

Biscuit joiners allow woodworkers to assemble their projects using tiny wooden biscuits, a fast and simple technique that even beginners can use to make strong wood joints. Stack, a professional cabinetmaker and editor at Popular Woodworking magazine, offers a number of attractive projects that feature biscuit joinery, including a media center, cabinets, a mirror, and a double lounge that converts into a bed. These plans are well written and are supplemented by excellent color photographs; the projects are within the abilities of most woodworkers. A bentwood clock and a free-form plant stand offer some rather innovative uses of a tool that is more typically used on a flat plane. The introduction (written by Christopher Schwartz and aptly titled "Biscuit Joiner Basics") offers a wealth of tips and ideas. This is an excellent book about an increasingly common tool. Recommended for all woodworking collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
